Riesling Gaisberg, Magnum’13, Hirsch, 1500 ml

Riesling Gaisberg, Magnum’13, Hirsch, 1500 ml
¥11,110

This single vineyard Riesling is sourced from 40-year-old vines that thrive on the terraced slopes of the famous Zöbinger Gaisberg vineyard. The eroded primary rock soils offer ideal preconditions for Riesling. Due to their expressive fruit and mineral character, wines from this site tend to charm quite early, yet excel with remarkable ageing potential.
The Gaisberg is usually harvested in mid-October, whole cluster pressed, and then exclusively fermented with natural yeasts at ambient temperatures. It is matured in stainless steel tanks and large oak casks and rests on the fine lees through April. The wine is bottled in July following harvest.

Pale green-yellow. Attractive, ale tropical fruit reminiscent of passion fruit and pineapple accompanied by subtle notes of blossom honey, lemongrass and flint. Highly elegant on the palate and displaying plenty of finesse in its juicy and well-balanced structure. A hint of honey also remains long on the finish. Already quite seductive.


Food recommendations:
A great match with grilled meat, goose, duck and game birds as well as richer fish such as salmon, swordfish and catfish, and sushi or sashimi. Stunning with matured white and red cheeses.
